I think his tie is blue tonight...or periwinkle

In an obvious attempt to extend the olive branch, the blue tie replaces the red. FTL, can we work together?

After he's in jail for mass murder, yes.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

No, this color was no where near any shade of taupe, the closest but it would be stretch would comparing it to a very light gray taupe but as I say it would be a stretch.

...or periwinkle

Isn't that some sort of bottled water?
